My, my how the world is changing. We may still be living in the material world but apparently diamonds are slowly moving down the list of favorite things of women. In fact 75% of women when asked to choose said they would now prefer to have a plasma TV. Wonder what Madonna‘s video would look like if she remade it after this survey?
Yes it is true. Women are becoming more and more tech and gadget savvy. Based on an independent survey commissioned by the Oxygen Network, a US cable network owned and operated by women, women own 6.6 technology devices against the 6.9 of the men. The technology gap is closing fast. More and more women are actually doing their own computer troubleshooting now, much to the relief of the men.
This is great news especially for the males who have always wondered what to give their lovely ladies. The Girls Gone Wired Survey actually shows that most women would actually prefer tech devices rather than luxury items. Asked to choose between a plasma TV and a Florida vacation weekend 56% chose the TV. 77% opted for the TV against a diamond solitaire necklace. 86% preferred a digital camera to designer shoes.
It doesn’t mean that girls no longer want diamonds. They just see more practical applications with these high tech toys and they are still nice to show off. The men should be happy. They can at least borrow these and no one would see them as weird unlike if they borrowed their fiancee’s shoes.
